The prompt for the "My Time To Craft Challenge Blog" #386 this time is "More Than One Fold (no easel cards)". For my card, I decided to go for a gate-fold style card (a card with two folds).
I cut a piece of white card into 6" x 12". I then scored lines at 3" and 9" (on the shorter side).
I decided on the patterned paper (one from Stampin' Up, I don't recall the name). I wanted to use and cut it to size and then stuck to the card base.
I then die cut an oval in a cereal box and a further two die cuts in co-ordinating plain coloured card. I glued and sandwiched the cereal card between the two pieces of coloured card and left to dry.
Using a Spellbinders die called "Floral Tags - S4-652" for the ornate detail in white and stuck it to the front of the dry oval card. I then stuck the oval to the central area of the card, only adhering it to the left hand side of the card.
I stamped the sentiment, using a Stampin' Up set called "Petit Pairs" and then die cut it into the oval shape, sticking it to the intricate oval design using foam pads to give it a raised look. I added some self adhesive pearls to the centre of the flowers.
This is the card fully closed.
This is the view of both sides of the card flat. The lower photo shows the interior of the card.
